I'm a para wheelchair player and compete against able-bodied and wheelchair players. I find that during a match (especially after a game or two) I become confused about my serve selection: type of serve, location, speed. Do you have any strategies to make this aspect of the game easier for me to manage? I have a good variety of serves, but I don't do a good job of choosing what to serve when. Sometimes I wish someone were telling me what to serve (like a catcher in baseball). Any thoughts?
I think the first rule is find a serve and use it often. However always have variation to keep them guessing.
Subtle variation is important. It often isn't the big changes that win points but the subtle change of spin and speed and placement of the ball.
The next thing is trust your judgement and go with it. You never know if any other choice you would have made was better or worse.
